One of the most impressive comics that I picked up at @indiecomixfest Delhi a couple of weeks ago. Great writing, editing, artwork and lettering. I find a lot of Indian comics lacking the sophistication I've grown to associate with European and American comics - and much of it seems to come down to shoddy lettering and editing! Not so with this lovely little gem by Nikhil Gulati of Oddball Comics, which is as pretty as it is well produced.
Swipe it. My honest review about the book ‘the paradoxical prime minister’ by Shashi Tharoor. I have been as honest as possible while reading. Keeping my political ideologies aside I have kept my review as clear as what the author had intended to say about. I have not changed his ideas or wrongly interpreted it. I read through the pages line by line and whatever I felt while reading it, I have expressed, nothing else. I have kept it simple, so that people who wish to read will have a better picture of what to expect. Thank you Tharoor for presenting this wonderful book. #tharoor#shashitharoor#paradoxicalprimeminister#bookstagram#bookreview#book#review#writersofinstagram#saturday#indianwriting
